Filmed over the course of a season, One Shot: The Football Factory takes us to the epicentre of British footballing talent – South London. Here, young players hone their skills on fenced-in, pitches known as “cages”, that occupy unlikely corners of towering council estates.
In this tough environment, the stakes are high as young players hope their talent will secure a better life for themselves and for their families.
Alongside the players, the series centres the voices of pivotal influences in the tight knit world of South London football. From the scouts, agents and coaches who nurture talent, to the player’s families. In One Shot: The Football Factory, we see the ups and downs for these young players, with the odds stacked against them.
